MC (Media Control) Setup 56 1 ® EEDVR Introduction DVR (Digital Video Recorder) technology replaces the use of existing analog technology, like VHS tapes and VCR’s, by being able to store images in digital formats that are superior in both convenience and quality. One of the many problems with analog tapes is the limited searching capabilities they provide. Searching for a certain event or time period in an analog tape is both tedious and inefficient. Now, with the introduction of DVR, it has become easier, among other things, to find the images you want: simply enter the time and date into the computer and data is retrieved in seconds. No more mundane searches or manual tracking of tapes. With VCRs, preservation of recorded data, especially sensitive recordings, was difficult to do. DVR provides several options (DAT, CD, DVDs) in permanently preserving large amounts of data in digital formats, maintaining the integrity of the video for far longer periods than any analog tape. The DVR also works in conjunction with sensors to operate security systems: relays can close shutters or ring sirens when motion sensors are triggered, for instance. In addition, our DVR makes it possible to modify EEDVR DVR settings and retrieve recorded data remotely through a network or the Internet. Reliability, convenience in searching and storing, and flexibility to meet various demands for surveillance systems are what make us proud in offering the next generation DVRs. Various features briefly introduced here are just some of the features of a constantly evolving technology. We are always striving to innovate and create new ideas to meet demands from all areas of the globe. For any questions, please contact us through the Service Request form available online. When submitting your concerns, please provide the company name and phone number with detailed answers to each of the prompts. Service Request Number: (800) 328-2027 Website: 2 ® EEDVR 1. Specification · 1~32 Camera Inputs / Output Up to 32 camera inputs are available on screen for digital handling. Normal input condition: 75 Ohm, 1 Volt (p-p) · 1~32 Sensor Inputs Up to 32 sensors can be linked to the system. External DC 12 Volt power must be provided to the sensor input from outside. · 1~8 Digital Outputs (Relay Outputs) Digital Outputs can be used to activate devices like shutters and sirens, and activation can be linked to sensor and motion detection. · Sound Recording and Two-Way Communication Capabilities Sound can be recorded with video images. Two-way communication is possible between EEDVR main and EEDVR Net, while sound is being recorded. · Display Features (w/ Multi-Viewing) Multi-Viewing allows 1, 4, 6, 9, 10, or 16 different camera shots to be displayed onscreen at the same time. Other display features include enlarging all displayed cameras or just one. 32 channel viewing can be attained with specially configured cards. · PAN/TILT/ZOOM/FOCUS Capabilities Each connected camera can be manipulated through the EEDVR main program as long as each camera supports such capabilities. This feature can be controlled remotely. · Auto Rebooting System When EEDVR detects an error or malfunction within the system, it will automatically reboot the system in order to correct it. · Motion Detection and Sensor Trigger Detection features make it possible to record images only when movement is detected, preserving volume space and maximizing the use of physical storage space. 3 ® EEDVR · Scheduled Recording Scheduling allows the administrator to record images only during designated time periods, if so desired. Every combination of scheduling is available in EEDVR program. · Manual and Auto Backup Data can be preserved through various formats (DAT, CD, or DVD) and data from specific cameras and/or time periods can be specifically isolated for backup as well. Much like scheduled recording, backup of data can be scheduled as well. · Digitalized Video Search Recorded data features digital playback for each camera simultaneously or one at a time. Playback features include advanced search features and image extracting, which allows portions of existing video to be extracted and saved as a separate file. · Network Support (PSTN, TCP/IP, LAN, Modem Protocol Support) EEDVR supports network access, which allows administrators to login to DVR main program and remotely access all the features that are provided locally. · Integration with Text data from External Devices Data from external devices (POS, Access Control, ATM, etc) can be recorded with DVR video images. Text Search allows to search data from external devices with DVR video image when event occurs. This will raise the level of integrity and security.
